Join Woodmere's associate curator, Rachel Hruszkewycz, for a tour of The Woodmere Annual: 80th Juried Exhibition, now on view through August 28.
Migration is the act of moving from one place to another. We move in different ways between man-made borders, physical and ancestral spaces, and our memories.
Jurors Michelle Angela Ortiz and José Ortiz-Pagán invited artists to submit works of visual art that reflect the theme of migration.
Thirty-five artists working in sculpture, video, painting, photography, and collage address topics such as the Great Migration, the experience of Congolese immigrants in Philadelphia, the degradation of the natural world, and the migration of the Arctic tern, whose annual route is longer than that of any other bird. The spectrum of ideas and processes illustrates the intellectual rigor and creative diversity that characterize our city’s art community.
Refreshments will be served after the tour. To register, please email Erin Lawrence at email@example.com
